Hi Becky! My friend had immediate reconstruction with the DIEP flap surgery. Another had expanders and breast implants later. I had a bi lateral mastectomy and thought about staying flat. I'm a runner and liked not having to wear double sports bras because of the double Ds I had before. Ended up doing DIEP flap with fat and skin from my stomach. Worked out really well. Even though my breasts aren't as small as I'd like I'm happy with them. Just had a revision surgery and got nipples. Will do a tattoo in October. Decision making for all of this is difficult. Thoughts a prayers it gets easier.
